Andrew Mayne, creator of Gut Buster and ghostbills, presents a 21st century paranormal effect. Using an unprepared borrowed camera phone the magician reveals spectral images of ghosts and premonitions from beyond.
Your spectators watch the display as a dark silhouette crosses the room in real time. A thought of word, image or card appears in a photograph of a spectator’s hand. A haunted face appears in the shadows.
Ghost Vision is a spine-tingling effect that allows you to use a borrowed portable electronics device to create a digital séance that can be saved as photo or movie. It’s easy to perform and works with most camera phones.
24 minute widescreen DVD including an extra bonus effect: The Haunted Keys
Comes with everything needed to perform (cell phone not included).
Andrew Mayne presents a radical twist on the classic newspaper tear (based on Jim Steinmeyer's Incessant Newspaper) - a completely impromptu and inspectable newspaper tear!
A spectator is asked to sign a totally unprepared newspaper right off the newsstand. The magician then takes the paper and rips it to shreds. He crumples the pieces together and then visually restores the newspaper! The restored newspaper, complete with signature, is handed back to the spectator to inspect and keep as a souvenir.
* Totally impromptu: No preparation, no gimmicks
* No switches, no duplicate newspapers
* Everything can be inspected before and after the effect
* Tear Down can be performed with full-sized newspapers, tabloid-sized and even magazines!
Tear Down is one of the most practical and visual newspaper tear you'll ever learn. Once you learn it, you'll be able to perform it anytime, anywhere. Zero-preparation, no gimmicks, no duplicates. Just pick up a newspaper and do it!

"This is good, easy, effective mentalism...the psychology behind this one is sound. You are now asking the spectator to question what really happened. Recommended."

The magician attempts to put it back together but accidentally restores the bill in a mis-made twisted state with half the bill facing the wrong way! The signatures are plainly visible on either side! He finally restores the bill back to its original condition.
Twisted allows you to perform both a torn and restored and a mis-made bill effect using a borrowed bill that can be signed by a spectator. It’s easy to master and can be performed anytime anywhere.

"Twisted adds a whole new dimension to the bill change. Now it's visual! You create an impossible object and then fix it right before their eyes. And the ability to do it with a signed bill fooled me!"
